Hope and Healing Conference 2021

May 6, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 4:15 pm

Father Gregory Boyle, S. J., Founder and Director of Homeboy Industries, will be joining us from Los Angeles to discuss his Methodology of Love, Community, and Tenderness.  Homeboy Industries is the largest gang intervention program in the United States.

Building an inclusive community, one in which everyone has the opportunity to lead a fulfilling life as a valued member free from prejudice requires a “reframing” of the methods used to relate to each other. Click here for more information.

This conference has two main purposes:

  1. To celebrate the contributions of people and organizations that have led the way in including people with mental illness who are transitioning from prison, abusive living situations, and other life conditions that often sever their ties from the community.
